Jacob's Creek Chardonnay Pinot Noir Brut
Notes sourced from Orlando Wines.
This wine has been sourced predominantly from selected vintages, known for producing quality sparkling wines. As a non-vintage style, complexity has been achieved with the inclusion of prior vintages to produce a wine of consistency and quality.
The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes were selected from premium districts, including Buckland Valley (VIC), Cowra (NSW) and Adelaide Hills (SA). Harvested in the cool of night, minimal juice contact with the skins and gentle pressing produced juices of elegance, finesse and delicate fruit flavour. These juices were fermented separately using a yeast strain isolated in Champagne, to produce delicate base wines, which then underwent secondary fermentation in bottle.
Mid straw green colour with a fine and persistent mousse. On the nose citrus and toasted cashew nut flavours of Chardonnay are married to the fresh attractive breadcrustcharacters of Pinot Noir. The palate displays elegant fruit flavours enhanced with creamy yeastautolysis providing depth and flavour. The wine finishes soft, crisp and clean.
